I love wearing these two {really there’s three, if you count the collared tee underneath the polka dot shirt} pieces together. When I’m having a bad day, this just picks me up. Which is funny because the shape does absolutely nothing for me. In fact, it emphasizes everything I want to hide…mostly my bulging middle and my skinny legs. But it also makes me smile. I think this is a case of pattern/color overcoming insecurities. Or maybe it’s just that I have to fake a certain amount of confidence to highlight the parts of me that I don’t really like… Then again, I could just be over thinking this whole thing…

Do you have an outfit like that? Something that requires that you fake self confidence?

    Some of my short hemline dresses and skirts. And this double slit dress I wore in a post called Daring.

    • I love the way that clothes can change the way we perceive ourselves and the way other’s see us. I think that’s the fun part of being a girl – being able to change our personality (or self esteem) with a quick wardrobe change.

  • After baby #2 a lot of my closet requires a bit of faking it. But I am more in love with the baby than worried about the bumps he left on me. You are lovely- who doesn’t want skinny legs anyway?

    • I love that! This was/is a functioning body that carried 4 of the most amazing people ever. Thank you for the reality check.

  • Visiting from the WIWW and I like what I’ve read so I will be back to read more. . .Enjoy your Summer!

    • Thank you so much, Kurves. Enjoy yours as well.

  • Yes, I have a few and always laugh on the inside ‘gotta fake it to make it!” Happy 4th Holiday!

    • Definitely! I’m faking it hard most days. Happy {belated} 4th to you as well.

  • Yes, I do – and my problem areas are my tummy and arms. I’m trying to be less self-conscious about the arms – I don’t think many women really like their arms anyway! You look terrific! And I think you have a cute figure and great legs. We are our own worst critics…

    • Oh, gosh, aren’t we though? I see some women and I think: Wow, she’s got it all together and then I hear her insecurities and realize that most women are just like me…. Craziness. We all need to do better.But, geez, it’s hard sometimes.
